Assuming you have cleaned the games well, it is possible it is an issue with one of the RAM or graphics chips. But that is just my initial guess.



Open it up and hit the cartridge port and all socketed ICs (after removing the ICs) with Deoxit or similar.  Give it a few minutes to dry out, reinstall the ICs, see if it made a difference.


Option 2 is to skip the in-depth cleaning and just press down on the ICs to make sure that they're seated properly, then try again and see what (if anything) improved.
